THE A&T FOUR—On Feb. 1, 1960 in Greensboro, North Carolina, four A&T freshmen, Ezell Blair Jr. (Jibreel Khazan), Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil and David Richmond, walked downtown and “sat-in” at the whites-only lunch counter at Woolworth’s. They refused to leave when denied service and stayed until the store closed. The very next day, 25 students from A&T and other Greensboro colleges/universities joined them. In the next 10 days, students across the state of North Carolina participated in similar sit-ins. By week three, demonstrations had expanded to at least 250 major cities and towns across the country. Woolworth’s was desegregated by the end of July 1960. It was the protest of these four heroes that became the model and inspiration for later civil rights, anti-war and women’s liberation movements.
THE PLOT is an area where members of governed Greek letter organizations gather. Collectively, they serve as the liaison between the University and students in matters of common interest. They also positively compete in scholarship, service, and athletics.
